The Next One to Fall

Finished January 17
The Next One to Fall by Hilary Davidson

This novel is set in Peru, mainly around Cusco and Machu Picchu, the Incan historical city. The main character, Lily Moore, is a travel writer who is North American, but now lives in Spain. Her sister has died recently and her friend Jesse, photographer, has convinced her to come on this trip with him. At Machu Picchu, they come across a woman who is dying and while Jesse goes for help, Lily tries to keep her conscious and listens to her final words accusing someone of hurting her. The police dismiss the accusations and Lily feels determined to find the truth and make sure someone pays for the woman's death. But as she digs deeper, she not only puts herself in danger, but she also has trouble figuring out who to believe.
With kidnappings, shootings, and mental illness, this book has lots going on and should keep you glued to the page.
The author has a similar background to the character, which is also interesting.


  1. Wow, almost a true story. Sounds good.

  2. I read it too and thought it had a very good story line. I could by into how Lily could find herself involved in the chain of events surrounding the woman's death

  3. Oh, me too Swordsman. Totally worked that she got drawn into it based on her own experiences.
